Check out 6 new products that will help prevent your kids from contracting the H1N1 Swine flu virus.

There are basic prevention techniques and products that may help slow the spread of this outbreak. Here are 6 products to help keep your family healthy:

Celly Smellys®

Kids can contract the flu not just from others but from contact with things as well. When Jessica Pohlkamp learned that cell phones are dirtier than the bottom of a shoe or a public toilet seat, she invented Celly Smellys® scented cleaning wipes. These LCD-safe wipes for electronics remove germs from the things kids use most: video games, cell phones, iPods, laptops and calculators.

So the next time your kid attempts to clean her cell phone with some spit on her thumb, hand her a pack of Celly Smellys®. Fun fragrances include Berry, Melon and Colada.
